. they had some concerns, did they not, as to whether or not mr. zimmerman at that point had been arrested. >> yes, sir. >> okay. were you sharing with them your progress, what was done and still needed to be done? >> yes, sir. >> and can you outline the setting, where you were when you had this conversation with the two of them? >> we conducted a meeting in the conference room that we have in the police department on the second floor, and i -- and after that i went ahead and played the 911 recordings for him. >> okay. do you recall where that recording took place? >> it was at my desk. >> okay. that was as testified to by previous officers as sort of a cubby hole set up with two or three other desks within close proximity. >> yes, sir. >> and can you then tell the jury how that was set up, where you were sitting, where mr. martin was sitting, and where ms. green was sitting. >> i was seated in front of my desk facing my computer monitor. mr. martin was to my rear left, and next to him was his girlfriend or fiance brandy. kind of like in that posture. >> ok. so if i'm sitting at my screen
's listen in. >> you had an opportunity to see mr. zimmerman shortly after the altercation with mr. martin, correct? >> yes. >> can you tell the jury when that was? >> i don't know the exact date, but i would say it was within a couple days after the incident. >> describe him, if you would. did you notice what he looked like? >> he had black eyes. his nose was scraped up. he had some bandages on a his head. that was the obvious physical bruising he had. he looked emotionally traumatized. >> have you seen that in fighters that you've worked with? >> i've seen that in people. generally not in fighters after, you know, they've been competing for a while. a little bit different. he had the look of a human being who had been through an extremely traumatic experience and was traumatized from it. almost like a state of shock that was continuing. >> the -- did he have a conversation with you where he discussed shrimping and the recourse of this event? >> yes, he did. >> when was that? >> objection, hearsay. >> please approach. >> lisa bloom, let's talk to you about what's going on. i can see where
testimony from friends and co-workers of mr. zimmerman today. >> well, if it were up for a vote, the defense would win because they now have seven witnesses saying that zimmerman screaming for help on the 911 call. of course it is not up for a vote. there's three prosecution witness whose have said so and there's one prosecution witness who didn't know either of these men but said it sounded like a boy who was screaming. add to that that george zimmerman himself when confronted with the tape by law enforcement said it doesn't sound like me and add to that further that the screaming stops when the shot rings out, which might suggest that the shooting victim was the one who got shot. so it's complicated. my view as is the jury will probably say we can't sort this out and simply put this piece of evidence aside, andrea. >> craig melvin, what are we expecting for the rest of the afternoon and also coming up tomorrow and as we proceed this week? >> andrea, so far today the defense has called five witnesses. we expect that at any moment -- the jury in fact is being brought into the jury right now.
something who is fairly proficient. >> would have to be. >> did you train mr. zimmerman at all in a do with arm locks or anything like that? >> he wasn't accomplished enough for that. >> so -- >> he had been around in a class as far as chokes and arm locks but that was not something he could pull off. >> even if i never came to your gym, if you jumped on top of me, i might grab your arm and try to -- >> absolutely. >> that would not be what you would define arm lock. >> not close. >> just a grabbing of the hand? >> it's a reflex. understand, what we do is we try to go and train a skill set to where you're have conditioned reflections. that takes quite a bit of work. >> you had said -- you defined mr. zimmerman as soft, at the beginning of all of this. >> uh-huh. >> how was he when he left your gym? how would you define him? >> well, he had lost quite a bit of weight so he was in physically better shape, but he would still have a long way to go. he wasn't shredding or ripped like any competitive fighter or body builders. he still had more body fat to lose, and he still needed to gain mu
're not going to step on any of it. >> it was all about these assumptions that mr. zimmerman made these assumptions and trayvon, used his middle name, not here because of the assumeses he made and he is doing sometimes what the defense does, which is trying to get into they're hearts hearts and o some degree ignore the law and have the sympathy and compassion for the child that died, the boy that died, and the parents that are sitting there. >> shepard: a delicate balance with trying to say, clearly, trayvon martin is not the boy they wanted -- they wanted to say he was using drugs, here's cursing and all of these things. not uncommon but also difficult. >> the defense made a good decision in holding back on the use of marijuana. mara gave -- >> i heard zimmerman was saying to his lawyer, where is the marijuana? he wasn't look can for any. he was wondering why he didn't brick it up, a as far is a know. [laughter] >> might need some. >> it was a good decision on o'mara's part. he said during his press conference last night, he did not want to damage the memory of trayvon martin any
of his clothes, and also, this is in the context, where mr. zimmerman himself originally said, he didn't think that was his voice. >> right. i think he had a lot of people who took the stand this morning, today, who said that, yes, that's him screaming, but, you know, how much of that is discounted, because of the personnel and financial connections that he has to those people. you know, you -- we've heard from trayvon's mother, trayvon's father, trayvon's brother. they all have a connection to him, to trayvon martin, but other people who did 911 calls, who said they thought it was the guy on top, meaning the one screaming for help was the one on bottom was george zimmerman, but you also had some people who testified saying that the person they heard screaming sounded like a child, sounded like a young boy. >> okay, well, we're joined live now from sanford, craig melvin is there. and craig, can you tell us exactly what's going on inside the courtroom right now at this moment? >> reporter: right now, martin, judge nelson is considering hearing on john donnelly. he's the guy who's marrie
testimony was quite credible when he believed it was mr. zimmerman. doris singleton and, by the way, chris serino both say the same thing. unfortunately, when mr. martin did first hear the tape, he said what he believed to be true then, it would seem, from the officers. and that is that's not my son's voice. it just wasn't his voice to him. and his mind has changed now. but it is interesting for you to consider when you're trying to figure out that issue of who said what and what witnesses said what. because you're going to give them credibility, you're going to weigh them, you're going to decide to dismiss their testimony or to accept their testimony and figure out -- remember always awz we'll talk about in a moment, where the doubt always goes to my client's benefit. adam pollock, animated, good guy. george is soft, he's a 1. i don't care that he's been here for a year. i'm not sure i actually would have advertised that i trained george zimmerman for a year and brought him from a .5 to a 1, but he did. not a fighter, so this mma, you know, george -- i think the state said it was 18 month
, as to whether or not mr. zimmerman at that point had been arrested? >> yes, sir. >> were you sharing with them your progress, what was done and what still needed to be done? >> yes, sir. >> and can you outline the setting, where you were when you had this conversation with the two of them? >> we conducted a meeting in the conference room that we have in the police department on the second floor. and after that i went ahead and played the 911 recordings for him. >> do you recall where that recording took place?
in athleticism. on a scale of one to ten, where would mr. zimmerman fit? >> like i said brk a one. he's still learn how long to punch. he didn't know how to effectively punch. >> diana, i found this kind of curious. the prosecution didn't bring this up. why would the defense call attention to the fact that this guy wasn't in shape or as his trainer referred to him fat, 1%, .5% on a scale of 1 to 10. why bring it up? >> the state did talk about this in their opening. even when nobody brings in evidence of what they've said and the jury is told that's not evidence, i think the defense still felt like they needed to say this guy was big, certainly bigger around than trayvon martin, but he was not in shape, he was not athletic, he was not somebody who would be able to take him in a fight. and as the injuries seem to support, it doesn't appear that zimmerman got a blow in prior to drawing the weapon after sustaining injuries himself. so i don't know that it was necessarily necessary at this point and certainly george zimmerman's got to be a little bit embarrassed. i mean he's called obese one day
interviews after court every day tells you there's a lot of confidence there. if mr. zimmerman gets convicted of anything, the first person he's going after is his lawyer and he's going to say he was hamming it up for the cameras instead of working on my case. i think they feel very confident and very comfortable moving forward. and so did the prosecution at the beginning of this case. i'm not sure how he feels right now, though. >> a lot of us didn't think he would cross-examine trayvon martin's mother but he did. do you think he's going to call george zimmerman? >> i would say no but after seeing him call trayvon martin's mother and asking him if trayvon martin was responsible for his own death and now calling tracy martin, i don't know what to expect. i think it's possible now. >> rather, it's zimmerman's decision, not o'mara's. >> i'm sure that o'mara will have a huge influence on george zimmerman but, martin, go ahead. >> that was the point i was going to make. we already know that george zimmerman wants to speak out. he went on fox television. i'm sure that mark o'mara was adamantly opp
if the beating was as severe as i would submit mr. zimmerman claims, then how did it occur? i guess maybe -- well, we can speculate. i think even dr. di maio said, well, sometimes you hit something and you don't necessarily injure your hands. that's a possibility. that could also be true for george zimmerman's hands. the defendant, george zimmerman, two people. one shot to death and one repeatedly lies about how it happened. why might that be? you wonder? if one is shot to death and the other one lies, why would that person lie? he brought a gun to a struggle, to a fight that he started by following him and wanting to make sure that the victim didn't get away. and now he wants you to let him off because he killed the only eyewitness. the victim, trayvon martin, who was being followed by this man who had the right to defend himself. defendant's interview. you obviously know he gave various interviews. i want to just quickly highlight certain parts that i will submit to you are relevant as to establishing why this defendant's lying and why he was caught in numerous lies. and then obviously why it h
